Plaxcaster Frogling Discussion
3 weeks ago
Hey dude, sorry if i'm sending you too much spam - just had a gander at your two other decks, and based on seeing those thought i'd throw another idea in the mix: using Bioshift but without infect.
You keep Invisible Stalker cause he just seems great with counters on him. Early game you drop nonsense like Hardened Scales, Cloudfin Raptor, Thrummingbird, Plaxcaster Frogling, Birds of Paradise, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and maybe a few Master Biomancer (you probs want 22-23 lands). This gives you a good group of evasive flyers that'll start getting swole. Something like Thrive can help get the Thrummingbird distributing more counters (though not sure this is the ideal spell), while Llanowar Reborn is probably a must-include land.

You're missing a few big heckin cards.
Cephalid Constable is miraculously underrated, Drumhunter is a personal howling mine AND a mana dork, Elvish Visionary draws a card, Experiment One and Pelt Collector are excellent one-drops, Fertilid is awesome repeatable ramp, Forgotten Ancient is bat-shit insane with four players, Gilder Bairn is both adorable and quite functional, Glen Elendra Archmage is a repeatable negate, Kalonian Hydra is hilarious (and it's a 0/0 so I think you can trigger Ezuri's ability before his ETB), Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is a powerhouse, Managorger Hydra get too big too quickly for most opponents to handle, Novijen Sages is a nice draw engine, Permeating Mass is fantastic in this deck, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Toothy, Imaginary Friend are such a good combo, Plaxcaster Frogling is great protection, Scavenging Ooze is awesome (Meren is in my meta, idk about you), Seedborn Muse is good anywhere, Simic Manipulator leads to fun shenanigans, Sporeback Troll, also good protection, Tuskguard Captain is perfect evasion, Ulvenwald Tracker is about as good as green removal gets, and Wild Beastmaster is another Cultivator of Blades, but a little less for a little less mana. Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty are a couple gems, Bred for the Hunt, Doubling Season, and Hadana's Climb Flip are great for countered up dudes, Rhystic Study, which should honestly go in every blue EDH deck, Cloudstone Curio it's better than Panharmonicon in this, Strionic Resonator is also probably better than Panharmonicon here. Also a Thran Dynamo might do ya good in the mana department.

You want to first consider the synergy that you want to build. If your going with ramping hard and abusing your walkers, go for the proliferation theme. Some cards that will help you out in this aspect are cards like Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Doubling Season, Inexorable Tide, Deepglow Skate, Contagion Engine.
If you want to go ahead and bash people's head in with Atraxa, consider some cards that gives it +1/+1 or protection. Cards that can help Atraxa out this way are cards like Master Biomancer, Forgotten Ancient, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, or Plaxcaster Frogling.
Hope that helps!

First off, a big apologies for the delay in getting back into this comments section. Work got the better of me for a week and I've hardly had the time to get on here! Thank you all so much though for pitching in :) It's beyond appreciated!
I'll address each of you individually in here as well, but as a bit of general information, v1.1 of the deck is only incorporating changes from hkhssweiss as his suggested cards were the only cards I was able to get my hands on before the work rush. I do have some from other user's suggestions, but I wanted to get my hands on all suggested cards, not just the few I had.
Thankfully, I do now have a decent amount of spare time on my hands and will be visiting my LGS to purchase and try out all card suggestions within the next couple of days.
@MillersEdge - Wow, dude, what an effort you put into that, thank you ever so much! It's quite clear you know your stuff :)
Regarding ramp, I can certainly appreciate your observation. The lack of mana rocks in this deck is definitely a big thing. I really like the idea of Coalition Relic, Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice and believe all 3 of these will make it into v1.2. Forest retrieval cards are nice but can become dud draws fairly quickly in the game. I've added both Nature's Lore and Three Visits to the MaybeBoard anyway and will play-test with them as well. I want to get both Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch in somehow too.
Phyrexian Scriptures has also made it onto the MaybeBoard. It's certainly an eye-catcher with all 3 abilities having relevance, and I do like the idea of Saga's (never played them before). In saying that, one of the common players at my playgroup has both a Sharuum the Hegemon deck and a Breya, Etherium Shaper deck. We'll see how it goes.
In terms of the prison related cards, I'm actually probably going to move away from this plan, as to do it effectively you do seem to dedicate a large amount of slots. However, Spike Weaver genuinely looks amazing. I've no doubts that he'll see some MainBoard action in the future.
Privileged Position is currently in for a late game pillow fort strat involving Privileged Position, Sterling Grove and Avacyn, Angel of Hope. To be honest though, the three of these cards might be swapped later for others anyway as they really only hold relevance to themselves. Or I'll simply add Shalai, Voice of Plenty as well as Privileged Position as quite a few other users are also recommending it. Armageddon is hated at my playgroup, but I don't mind being 'that-guy' every so-often ;) I'll play test it this week and see what the general reaction is.
The walkers got a pretty big shuffle around since you might have last seen the deck, but I do see the relevance of Tezzeret the Seeker and Garruk Wildspeaker. Tezzeret the Seeker could come in handy if I can increase my mana rock amount, and I think I prefer the idea of him over Garruk Wildspeaker. Will get back to you with results.
Leyline of Anticipation has landed in the MaybeBoard with high chances of being MainBoarded. I genuinely forgot all about this badboy!
Really really like the idea of Nexus of Fate, looking forward to seeing what sort of shenanigans I might be able to pull off with that. Savor the Moment is definitely competitive, but the late game appeal of Nexus of Fate is striking me more.
I'll definitely jump onto your list as well and have a fish around :) As well as throwing in my own 2 cents! Thanks again.
@Aragon_Neotrix - Thank you! Definitely hearing you regarding proliferate-able targets. I'm hoping to improve on that in the next iteration with counter based mana rocks etc.
Aetherworks Marvel is amazing, hardly surprising it was banned in standard eh?! I did admittedly forget about energy and experience counters. I'm sure this is going to make it onto the MainBoard.
I'll take a closer look over your own version over the next day or two for some more proliferation ideas, and will throw in any suggestions I have myself :)
@ManSauce - Man, every suggestion here is on point. Thank you so much!
Captain Sisay is a card that wouldn't have occurred to me. Very likely become one of the main tutors in the deck. Mox Amber and Noble Hierarch - Yep. Definitely keen on both. Ramp is becoming the main concern of the next update.
Plaxcaster Frogling is another one that I don't think I ever would have found. Interested to see how I can use it. Shalai, Voice of Plenty has received a few recommendations now. I'll be likely to find a spot for this too. Llanowar Reborn could pretty much be an auto-include.
I've jumped onto your profile and bookmarked your own version to go over in more depth. Thanks heaps for the suggestions :)
@Jimmy_Chinchila Man I've been spamming Search for Azcanta Flip in Magic Arena lately and for whatever reason it didn't even occur to me here! Thalia's Lancers is indeed solid but I think it might lack by comparison to some other tutors. Regardless it's been added to play testing.
Forgive me for the bulk of cards sitting in the MaybeBoard, my worst ability is choosing what has to come out! Aha. As mentioned earlier though, I've setup a large chunk of time to go through all current suggestions over the next couple of days and look forwards to coming back to cull the list :)
Thanks heaps for the suggestions, I've also bookmarked yours to go over in more depth!
@hkhssweiss - You're more than welcome my man! :) Thanks heaps for coming back again! Aha.
Not to worry regarding the planeswalker suggestions. I may be a little rash with my initial judgement of Vraska, Golgari Queen but admittedly the current objective has me focused on getting other utility spells in over planeswalkers.
Assassin's Trophy is amazing. I'd expect to see this in just about every G/B deck moving forward! Likely to make it in, just need to allocate a spot. Djeru, With Eyes Open is definitely one I hadn't seen before! His second ability might just make him a prime tutor candidate. Windgrace's Judgment is also phenomenal. Most of my games have 5+ people making this awfully attractive.
Shalai, Voice of Plenty has popped up 3 times now making her impossible to ignore! xD Pir, Imaginative Rascal is beyond amazing and as the more important part of Doubling Season is almost guaranteed a spot.
Thanks heaps yet again my dude! I do more than appreciate you sticking around :)
Ty all! Now to testing, woo!

Here might be some budget cards you can work with:
Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Forgotten Ancient, Master Biomancer, Plaxcaster Frogling, Prime Speaker Zegana, Chasm Skulker, Champion of Lambholt, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Sage of Hours, Steady Progress, Mystic Remora
Hope that helps!

It seems weird right? I like goldfishing on paper, but testing other people's deck online is quite interesting although a bit strange.
Some thoughts, I really like Plaxcaster Frogling a lot haha always have that protection up and can protect Atraxa. And out of the 15 games I played, Sylvan Library is just amazing, the life gain from Atraxa is enough to offset the damage taken from the extra draw. Early game Everflowing Chalice is super strong, and Leyline of Anticipation + Defense of the Heart is a good way to sneak in the Praetors. The only weakness I see so far is the early game, where you don't have much effects, but that's okay because your mid game is definitely strong. Your most important colors is Green/Blue so most of the time I fetch for Breeding Pool as it's essential to play for about 40% of your spells. I mostly tutor for card draw whenever I get a tutor, so top options for me is Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study, and Jin-Gitaxias. If card draw is already established I go for protection for Atraxa.
Mana base wise, I never really had a problem, my only issue was with the Hideaway lands, I'm not too fond of them mid or late game. It's alright early game but I would replace it for better mana fixing lands. Even pain lands are a good alternative like Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes, Brushland, Caves of Koilos, Llanowar Wastes, and Underground River.

Captain Sisay can now tutor your planeswalkers. Mox Amber, because yes. Noble Hierarch, because yes. Plaxcaster Frogling puts a counter on Atraxa and gives her some protection. Shalai, Voice of Plenty will do the same (kinda), just for your walkers as well. Etched Oracle can refill your hand fast and continually. Llanowar Reborn has been way more useful than I would have thought. Finest Hour I play just to hear everyone groan. Savor the Moment I play after I play Finest Hour, preferably with a lot of walkers out, to keep that groan going. Thrummingbird, because at least one player wont be able to block it.
My two cents.

TheErebos I still love the idea that your keeping the Praetors around and the sub-infect theme. I was actually going to say to re-add in Triumph of the Horde as I really do like that card.
For the +1/+1 theme here are some cards that I used to use:
Also I would add back in Reyhan, you can additionally add in the one drop mana dork since you are going for the more wide synergy. Cards like Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Birds of Paradise, Noble Hierarch, Joraga Treespeaker, or Fyndhorn Elves.
Hopefully that helps!
